Broken Makeup? Fix It Quick!

 
Clatter..."NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"!!!

How many times have we heard that scream from ourself, our best girlfriend, our favorite drag queen or ANY makeup artist you may know? That is the dreadful sound of our eye shadow, powder blush or any other powder compact hitting the floor and shattering into a million pieces. Do you throw it out? Do you try and pick up all the little pieces and pray for another few uses? No! You read below and learn how to easily put it back together and use it like nothing ever happened.

So what do you need?

  1. Alcohol 70% or higher (I happen to have 99% bc it is what I use to sanitize my kit)
  2. The little pieces of your shattered heart- AKA your powder and the container it came in
  3. A small spoon or spatula
  4. Paper towel

  5.  

 

What to do:

  1. Make the entire compact into a loose powder by smashing up the existing pieces- along with the already broken pieces- into a loose powder consistency
  2. Take a small amount of the alcohol (you can use a dropper or the cap, but put in bit by bit) and slowly add it to your loose powder
  3. Mix the two together until it is a thick paste-like consistency
  4. Smooth the paste in the container- smooth the top like it was when you had it pre-drop
  5. Pat it with a paper towel
  6. Leave it for 24-48 hours untouched
  7. You looking sexy as hell as you apply your once crushed product now in perfect form!
  8.  

You're welcome!

Another Perfect Item From Lulu Lemon

 

Anyone that knows me, knows I have an obsession with bags... if you add a bag that looks like a HoBo bag, but is a work out bag AND has the utmost amazing neon color inside of it? I'm sold. And, I was.

I just finished an awesome Flywheel spin class on the upper east side and was walking down to Flywheel Flat Iron to take a barre class (hey! If I have a day to do it, why not?) when I passed by Lulu Lemon and saw my new love through the glass doors to heaven (AKA my Sackasana Bag through the Lulu Lemon doors). This bag is one of the most amazing and versatile bags I have ever seen. Not only can I put anything and everything needed for a workout, I am able to use it as a messenger bag when I'm on my bike, a HoBo bag when I'm around town and a yoga mat carrier whenever needed. WHAT COULD BE BETTER??? Really though, what?

The cuteness of this bag just gets deeper and deeper when you realize every pocket has a cute saying or advisement of what the pocket is for (ie the "sweaty wet unmentionables" pocket or the "phone" pocket.

All in all I would say that this bag is well worth the $108 price tag.  It will not only make you feel like a champion on the way to your workout, but it will make you the envy of all your friends having to shove their wet workout clothing in the main part of their purse.

Price tag: $108
